I am throwing it out there but I do not see the fascination of cheesecake. Aside from the biscuit base I am not all that in love with cheesecake and would rather sink my teeth into a different dessert. That said my taste buds were alight when I spied the Asda Peanut Butter Cheesecake whilst on my recent travels. Could this be the one that converts me into a cheesecake lover?  Part of Asda’s Extra Special Range this Peanut Butter Cheesecake was £4.00, pretty much an average price for the going cheesecake in supermarkets.

Banoffee Bombs – £2.00 Banana mousse with fudge and toffee flavour sauces, sponge pieces and toffee chips. I am having a love affair for anything banana flavoured recently and was pretty excited to find these. Tucking in these were light as a feather. The first layer of mousse was smooth, airy and packed full of authentic…
